For my #1 challenge (Fairytale Title), I read Wishes Come True by Kathleen Nance. Zoe Calderone had learned early not to believe in magic and wishes, but when her nine-year-old daughter, Mary, coaxes her to try conjuring a djinni in an attempt to brighten Zoe's mood, the hardworking single mother and computer analyst can hardly refuse.

Simon of Kaf has spent the last millenium bound to Earth as a virtual slave granting wishes. Unable to fully trust humans due to a vicious betrayal which still haunted his memories, he was an exile among his people.

When Zoe summons Simon, the djinni takes this, his ninety-fourth of 101 summonings, as his chance to locate his stolen amulet. He tries to manipulate Zoe's wishes, not realizing that, beneath her staid exterior, Zoe hides a wounded heart like his. I enjoyed this paranormal romance and gave it a B+!

B+! - (89-94%)

May you read well and often
